Fury: Usyk thinks he’s a smart little bastard

The Briton considers himself a more skilled boxer in comparison with Alexander

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) spoke to the WBA/WBO/IBF/IBO world heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KOs).

“Usyk thinks he’s a nimble little bastard and can box, move in heavyweight. I’ve been boxing and moving my whole career, but now I just love knocking out bastards.”

“I have never met anyone with greater speed than me, neither in sparring nor in fights. Usyk is a heavyweight, but he’s not faster than me. The fact that he was a middleweight means that he is increasing his speed. But middleweight with an extra 50 or 60 pounds won’t help him speed.”

Last month, the Ukrainian beat Britain’s Anthony Joshua in twelve rounds by split decision: 115-113, 116-112 and 113-115.

Immediately after the victory in a rematch over Joshua Usyk called out WBC champion Tyson Fury to fight. In turn, the Gypsy King demands $500 million for a unification fight with Usyk.

Usyk also said that he was primarily interested in a duel with Fury. According to the Ukrainian, there is no longer any interest in boxing with any other athlete.

Recently, Fury reached out to Anthony Joshua twice via social media and offered him a face-to-face fight. Tyson also stressed that he was ready to provide a chance for Anthony to take possession of the WBC belt.
